I provide hosting for bitcoins. It has previously been advertised on this forum, so I am announcing this clarification here.

One of my customers has hosted content that is borderline breaking the TOS of my providers, and may be illegal. They know what they are doing because they have a prominent message on the landing page advising visitors to use TOR.
It is currently being assessed by my providers. If it turns out that is is ok by them, then fine. I do not apply my values to the content I host.

I will just advise - as it says on the website, please do not host anything that my be considered illegal in the UK.

If my account gets terminated, then all of the hosting at 1btchost also gets terminated.
Of course - all customer data is kept safe by me, and most of my customers use untraceable e-mails anyway, but the bottom line is that 1btchost is to support the bitcoin community, not for hosting dodgy illegal stuff, and I will take down any content that may risk my account - to protect my other clients.

If you want to host stuff that would get taken off the internet, then that is what freenet is for. Look it up.

TOR and my hosting is not a substitute for freenet, and to use it as such is to put me in the firing line and hide behind TOR yourself. I do not feel great about being used in this way.

Hope this clarifies,
